Bravo: NYPD to honor intelligence unit despite Muslim complaints about surveillance program

Kudos to the NYPD for sticking to its guns regarding this legitimate program in the face of Islamic supremacist intimidation. "NYPD to honor intelligence unit despite controversy over spying on Muslims," by Barry Paddock and Rocco Parascandola for the New York Daily News, June 10 (thanks to Steven):

The NYPD will honor its Intelligence Division during its annual Medal Day Tuesday, despite the controversy surrounding the unit for spying on Muslims. The division will be one of a dozen units receiving special citations.

A Pulitzer-Prize winning Associated Press investigative report said the unit conducted broad surveillance of Muslims in New York and New Jersey.

Muslim Advocates, a New Jersey-based group, filed a lawsuit against the city last week, claiming the practices were unconstitutional and ordering the department to destroy collected surveillance.

The NYPD will honor the Intelligence Division for “exemplary work in combatting terrorism and reducing crime throughout the city,” officials said. The department says the unit has always acted within the law and credits it with foiling two terrorism plots to set off bombs last year....

I was about to say they should get an added cluster specifically for offending Muslims, but that's so easily done, maybe not.

From the article: “A Pulitzer-Prize winning Associated Press investigative report said the unit conducted broad surveillance of Muslims in New York and New Jersey”.

It could easily read:A Pulitzer-Prize winning Associated Press investigative report said Eric Holder . . .”

Not in this climate.

The nation is slowly, SLOWLY, learning and the process cannot be fast enough.

If only senate and congress critters would also become more perceptive of the dangers that islam presents to the security of this country instead of thinking in terms of their votes.

Don’t these critters understand that once islam is established, Congress will become superfluous and they will get their pink slips or worse?
